B&W: Take two

As previously mentioned, I love the black and white trend.  I also love the monochrome look.  This outfit is like a twofer.  When my jacket's off, I'm blacked out!  Utah has been so. damn. hot. the last few days, but when you go inside you freeze - at least I do!  So you need a jacket.  A white one, in particular.  The trick when dressing in one color is to play with different textures and fits.  Nothing ground breaking, sorry.  These tighter leather-like pants go really well with my loose fitting tank.  I'm wearing a cute lacy bralette underneath my tank for some other fun textures that peek through here and there [not pictured].

Lake Powell Post #1

Quick post for you today and a quick sneak peek at my trip to Lake Powell.  I'm still waiting on the majority of the pictures but here are a couple fun ones.  Lake Powell is my favorite trip.  It's so beautiful and so much fun.

^^ these boys make the trip so fun and entertaining. The guy on the shoulders is who took most of these pictures [obviously not this one].  Thanks, E! 

 ^^ ...not posed.  Since I don't do anything in the water, I am the designated flag holder.

^^ hahaha, very posed and very kidding 

More Lake Powell pictures to come!  And stop by tomorrow for an outfit post!


She's Got the Look: Casual Maxi

Today is the first day of my "She's Got the Look" series!  I will take a celebrity or model's look and find similar pieces and link them below to help recreate the out.  I'm starting it all out with a girl whose acting I don't love, but who has a fun, bohemian style I do.  Here is Vanessa Hudgens in a great casual maxi dress.

  Is there a look you think I should recreate?  Email me your favorite pictures or links at theinclinedblog@gmail.com with the subject line "She's Got the Look"!  

Also, I've updated my shopping list here!

  Count on seeing this kind of post every Wednesday.  Sound good?


Mad Hatter

As much as I love summer [if you don't believe me check here & here], I do love when a cloudy and windy day make their appearance in during the season.  It's great to mix it up, so I took advantage of this blustery weather and dug out my favorites: my wool hat, leggings and booties.  During the day I wore my grey tank alone [sorry, not pictured] but for my dad's birthday dinner, I threw on this lightweight cardigan that has just enough color for me [and it's long enough to cover my behind!].  I hope the rain sticks around for a day or two, but no more than that!

cardigan: UO [old; similar
tank: Victoria's Secret [last seen here]

hat: Target [loving this one]

Happy birthday, Dad and a happy birthday to my sister-in-law!


Summer Solstice

Happy June 21st!  I love summer and the weather it brings.  Tanks, shorts, sandals...YES.  However, I believe - like others - in balanced dressing.  For example, if I wear short shorts, I like to wear something on top that is loose fitting or long sleeved.  Or if I wear leggings I make sure my top has some flow or texture. Make sense?  Mix the long and short and tight and loose.  It's all about proportioning well.   Today I've paired a DIY pair of cutoffs [I live in jean shorts during the summer...you'll see] with a loose-knit, baggy sweater.

Quick and very late post today, oops!!  I can't seem to quit wearing the black and white combo as of lately.  Sorry, but I'm sure there's more of it to come, too.

Shopping List

Hey, guys!  I'm back from Lake Powell.  Such a great and much needed getaway.  It's definitely my favorite vacation.  It's always hard to come back to real life, but it was great to come home to Danny!  I'll have a post on my trip to Powell when I get the pictures from a family friend, as I didn't take any!  Anyway, today I have my current wish list for you all. It's another big one!

What things are you wanting??



This romper is a hand-me-down from my gal, Michelle.  Love her, love the romp.  Anyway, I paired this girly romper with a lightweight cardigan and some "edgy" sandals.  For some reason, my hair is looking really warm in these pictures... It's not really that red.  I'm still in LP, but will be back tomorrow!

Hey, guys! Again, just so every one is jealous [kidding.], I'm in Lake Powell.  But here is a quick outfit for your weekend.  Hope it's a good one.  Don't forget to tell your dads you love them!  I sure love mine and Danny's!

top: ASOS | skirt: H&M [love this one]

A vest of many colors

I'm leaving for Lake Powell today, which pretty much means today is my Friday!  Actually that means everyday is my Friday until Sunday, then Monday is my Saturday and Tuesday is my Sunday.  SCORE!  Not that anyone was worried, but I'll be back Tuesday.  I have planned posts while I'm away, so come and visit while I'm away.  On a different note, Danny and I had another midweek date!  Those are the best.  Unfortunately, Danny can't make it to LP this time around [he has a big golf tournament, GOOD LUCK!], so we said our goodbyes with a little Cafe Rio.
